Muir­field votes to ad­mit women

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Muir­field voted to ad­mit fe­male mem­bers for the first time in its 273-year history, clear­ing the Scot­tish golf club to re­turn to the list of 10 cour­ses that can host the Bri­tish Open.

The club had voted last May to main­tain its all-male pol­icy and it was dropped from the Open ro­ta­tion. Or­ga­niz­ers of the Bri­tish Open said Muir­field would now re­turn to the ro­ta­tion.

The host cour­ses of the Bri­tish Open have been an­nounced through 2021. Muir­field has staged the Bri­tish Open 16 times since 1892, most re­cently in 2013.
